Female Sterilization & Filshie Clip System

Fortunately there are many options for female contraception and sterilization. These options include Surgical Contraception, Hormonal Methods, IUD’s, Barrier Methods and Natural Methods. We suggest detailed research of the different methods and consultations with your doctor about which method is the ideal method for you.

The Filshie Clip System has been used for over 25 years with more than 8 million Filshie Clips applied worldwide and a long-term success rate of 99.76%. It is a very cost effective method for surgical contraception and is recommended by leading doctors and hospitals.

The Filshie Clip system involves placing a small titanium clip with soft Silastic® lining on each Fallopian tube; the clip is applied via a special Filshie Applicator. Once it has been applied, the clip is “closed” and the clip lining maintains pressure on the Fallopian tube; the pressure from the closed clip results in a complete blockage of the Fallopian at the clip site. Blocking the Fallopian tubes is the method for preventing fertilization.

The Filshie Clip System can be applied under local anesthesia and usually does not require an overnight stay. The system is quick, easy and effective and can be used via a laparoscopic procedure or after a cesarean section.
